Small lock that I can carry with me...?

I just picked up a new setup and will once again be worried about someone walking off with it. The resort we frequent does have ski check but it's not easy to get to. The board holders outside of the lodge entrance are $1.25 per use and that can add up. I don't spend much time in the lodge but having a lock would be nice.

Is there something on the market that maybe wraps around my binding when not in use? I could also find a way to incorporate it into my jacket.

I realize most locks can be cut but I want to at least discourage the spontaneous thief. Any small locks out there made for this purpose?

Thanks.

Not sure about anything that small, but I use a retractable Kryptonite combo lock kind of like DAKINE Cool Lock at REI.com . Small enough to fit in my jacket or pants' side pocket without bothering me at all.

I use something similar, it's super portable. And yup, it's easily cut, but it's not as easy as taking the unlocked board next to mine...

I have a pretty sturdy bicycle cable lock that I lock to a fence or a rail at the beginning of the day. When I'm ready for lunch, I go back to the same spot and lock my deck up. Just don't forget to take the lock with you at the end of the day. A friend of mine had his lock cut off when he left it overnight.

This would fit in your pocket and it has 2 feet of cable:

^^^ that is pretty much what I have. It isn't much but at least it is locked and someone would have to make a scene to get it off. Or at least more than just walking off with a board.

Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.

These are stronger and just a bit more bulky still around $15:



I think I got mine at Toys'R'Us for like $9.99ish

Sweet - I'm going with the Burton lock. It's $10 on Amazon.

That is perfect for my needs. I plan to lock it to the fence if I head in. I could also lock up my buddies' boards with the 2' cable.

Do you guys believe a lock is a necessity? At the last resort I hit, there was one of those "Valet" services where you give them your board and they give you a button with a number on it. Free of charge.
